Have you built a special version of LH to work with the RFTGm’s?  If so, is it possible to get a copy?

I used a serial port monitor program to capture the traffic in and out of the serial port and used the Lucent control program to set and read various parameters.  By analyzing the captured traffic and comparing the results to what the Lucent program was reporting / sending I worked out the protocol and message formats.

Scaling that to actual values could be a problem.  The DAC is not that big a deal... I scale it to a 0-100% value... no real need to be concerned with the actual voltage.  The temperature value will require a lot of work.  It has an 8 bit granularity and seldom changes more than one step.
